Try adjusting the knob the other way. It sounds to me like you're going backward. Screw the knob all the way the other way and then try another shot. Trust me. It's more common than you'd think.

Try reversing the rings. Move the back one to the front, and the front one to the back. Turn your elevation adjustment, back to -0-, and start again.

### Son just bought me a Bushnell Banner Dusk&Dawn 4 Plex, Mil-dot, 3-9x50E. Just looking for an explanation on all the marking on the reticle (inside of the scope) I understand the cross hairs and how to...

Simply put, the Mil-Dot is a way to estimate range with the scopes reticle. This type of reticle was developed for military applications. The space between the dot centers is equal to one milliradian (Mil). hence the name mil-dot. One Mil equals 3.6" inches at 100 yards, or 36" at 1,000 yards. To use this system effectively you must know the size of the target. For instance most people are an average of 6 feet tall or 2 yards. The formula used for determining range to the target is (size of target x 1000 divided by number of mils the target covers). Hope this helps FixYa up.

### My Weaver Classic riflescope is maxxed out for elevation

I don't think the tube holding the cross hairs will go up that high, and shimming the front base, I don't know. What you need is a new cross hair with the dots below the cross, They will raise your line of sight past the 350 zero. Or,,,,, just put the cross at the top of your target, 600 yards without the right scope is a long shot. I hope you have a heavy barrel target rifle in 308 or bigger. My M42 is unbelievable, but, It will shoot better than me all day long and I rarely go over 200 yards. I tried the 600 yard line once, didn't like it. Oh I could hit the target, but I like hitting doorknobs at 200 yards better. What are you shooting anyway? I hope your not trying to stretch out a 223 to the max.

### Bushnell Trophy scope on BLR .308 -- was fine when last used but now shoots 4 ft high at 100 yards and elevation screw is maxed out -- doesn't seem to have moved in rings and no visible sign of damage --

Rap it on its nose. Us a good screw driver and just give it a tap, not so hard to dent it but a good smack. with the handle. If this does not work remove it smack it, then remount, putting the rings is a small bit different location.

### To adjust the vertical on a Bushnell Banner scope, which way do I turn the screw and how much. I am 6 inches high

The top turret should be the one you need. You should see an U or D with an arrow pointing in one direction or another. Your scope should move the point of impact 1/4 inch at 100 yards for each click. Moving the adjustment 24 clicks in the down direction should fix you up if you are shooting at 100 yards. The movement will be linear for other distances.

### Scope elevation adjusted allthe way up & still shoots low

Bushnell sells nylon inserts for scope rings that fit inside of the scope rings and will affect the height of the ring to correct the problem. If you install them on the front scope ring, it will correct it and realign the rings correctly. It appears that the front ring towards the muzzle is not as high as the rear ring near the breach. This is why that even though the scope's adjustment is elevated as high as it will go, it is still hitting low because it is actually pointing down because apparently the rear ring is higher off the barrel than the front ring. The Bushnell inserts can correct this.

### Bushnell banner elevation maxed out

It sounds as if your Scope rings are out of alignment or the front ring is lower than the rear ring. You may be able raise the bottom of the front ring by inserting a shim under the front ring base.
